This project deals with an in-depth assessment of patient flow in the endoscopy unit. It includes analyzing the utilization of resources in terms of OR room and beds for recovery and pre-op. The study identifies waste and then dwells on the possible causes using tools like Value stream mapping and cause and effect diagram. It also looks into the pre-op, procedure and recovery durations over the day of week and during a day to identify trends. This assessment will be finally provided to the nursing director.
